Anybody checked out the "new" Rabbit?

This is a killer car with serious standard features. The interior is top flight and it drives and handles beautifully. The catch is: it's made in Wolfsburg! It is not a south of the border piece of donkey dung like the Beetle and other Golfs. I was really impressed with the Tiptronic as it really seemed to shift gears quickly with matched rpms both up and down. With the 16" alloy package and 5-speed manual the price is $15,450. Just $500 more than an xB but with maturity, elegance, features galore, and that volumous hatch.

Downside: thirsty 5 cyclinder yields just 22/30.

Ex nihilo, nihil fit . . .

I just bought a Rabbit, stick shift, 2 door - what a car. Switched from a 2005 Dodge RAM, what a change - pure Fahrvergnuegen. I'm 6'5", and I feel little in that car. Handling is great, fast, I get 25.7 MPG on my 80% HWY / 20% City commute, going 75 on the HWY, and some fast sprints in between.

I'm not sure why it is sold as a small car, it is above the other small cars sold for the same money.

Highly recommended!

Cheers, Tommy

Shame the dealer network sucks and they barely get an average reliability rating on Consumers ‰eports.
